Welcome Fretlight! Today for our Guitar of the Day, we’re spotlighting the newest member of the Sweetwater guitar manufacturer family, Fretlight Guitar. For nearly 25 years, Fretlight has been making solidbody electric guitars featuring polymer fretboards with an embedded LED Learning System. So not only do you get a great electric guitar, you also get a useful self-teaching tool!
There’s nothing quite like the Fretlight system. Your Fretlight guitar connects to your computer via USB. The included Fretlight Studio software displays scales, chords, riffs, even complete songs on the fingerboard of your guitar using LEDs embedded in the fretboard. Whether you’re a beginner learning your first licks or a seasoned pro looking to expand your knowledge and skills or to learn new songs quickly and accurately, the Fretlight Learning System is efficient and effective. Plus, you get a great playing, feeling, and looking electric guitar as well!
